Rear spring perch relocation confusion

Hello all. So obviously i am new to this forum and this is my first post. I have been researching on how and what EXACTLY to do when installing my rk 3.5 lift and relocating upper spring perches all in one initial installation. I have an idea on plans but my confusion is the order of which to do so. Can anyone give me the run down? Ihave a 99 tj by the way. Thanks in advance!

Im pretty new at this too. But i thought that, since your getting a suspension lift, (and presumably you will have SYE) that the spring perch that you would relocate would be on the axle.
my understanding is that the bottom perch should be at about 0 degrees slope (with respect to the ground) and that you would be achieving this after you set up for your pinion angle, which might be around 15 degrees for your lift.
Correct me if im wrong anyone. wouldnt be the last time...

otherwise, you would have to completely install your lift with axle and adjust pinion angle for sye, unless you want to redo all of this. At that point you could accurately judge where to place your upper perch.

Im guessing you would relocate upper perch in order to avoid relocating all other brackets on the axle.

Are you talking about something like this? Reusing the stock perch could save you some time and money but you have to carefully remove it. If your confused give these guys a call they should be able to help answer any questions.
